The Chariton County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday they are looking for a mother and her 4-year-old daughter who were reported missing on Thursday.
Rachel Koechner, 28, and her daughter, Zoee Sandner, might be in the Kansas City area, the sheriff’s office said.
According to Brookfield, Mo., police, Koechner and her daughter were last seen leaving her mother’s home around 3:30 p.m. Police are led to believe they might be with the ex-husband of the 28-year-old, who is also the girl’s father.
According to the sheriff, Koechner called her current boyfriend Monday morning and said she was fine and that people should stop looking for her. However, the boyfriend said the answer sounded scripted.
The call was traced to the Nights Inn in Blue Springs. When the sheriff called the motel, the clerk said the family was in front of him checking out so he put the 28-year-old woman on the phone. She made it clear to the sheriff she could not talk freely.
The sheriff called Blue Springs, Mo., police, but by the time officers arrived the trio was gone.
If anyone has any information as to the whereabouts of Rachel Koechner and Zoee Sandner, please call the sheriff’s office at 660-288-3277 or your local law enforcement office.
